Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 2043

Panel 1
Looking past the backs of Martello et als' heads at the four present members of the Five Pillars: Kofi Akosah, Lorelei de Clayre Jorge Ansari, and Enrique Colón.
Caption (at top): The Five Pillars of Bubbleopolis (minus Alyss Roaz, absent)
Jorge: Knowing you, Dominic, your Bill Ward nudes are probably knock-offs.
Caption (under Jorge): Jorge Ansari
Colón: First we need to beef up our defenses so another strike like this will fail.
Caption: Enrique Colón
Panel 2
Focus on Kofi, next to Colón. He's speaking to Verma, who we see from high and behind.
Kofi: How soon can we double the perimeter outposts?
Caption: Kofi Akosah
Verma (OP): In about 10 days. But that won't do much good.
Kofi: Why not?
Panel 3
Include Verma and Kāng, flanked by Martello and Montoya
Kāng: Because a two-megaton iron 'space-turd' coming in at 9/10ths of light-speed would blow right through anything we might throw at it to stop it.

Panel 4
Martello smiles, leans back in his chair
Martello: Gennelmens, I recommend you set up those extra perimeter stations, pronto.
Martello: I have an idea how we can deal with any more high-speed turds, iron or otherwise.
Martello: I just need a one-minute warning.
